The Jack Benny Program, Season 2, Episode 1 – Aired: 11/04/1951




The guest stars are singer Dorothy Shay, the "Park Avenue Hillbilly" and musician Frank Remley. Bob Crosby walks on stage in the middle of one of Jack's monologue jokes and proceeds to sing "I'm Sending You a Big Bouquet of Roses". Then, Don Wilson interrupts to apologize for being late. Mel Blanc, the taxi driver who brought Wilson to the studio, brings in the briefcase he left behind. Jack is shocked when Don tips him a five! Dorothy Shay sings "Beverly Hills". Shay introduces, from the Ozarks, Zeke Benny and His Mad Mountain Boys. Jack, in bibbed overalls, leads the ragged bunch of hillbilly musicians in performing "You Are My Sunshine" and "Fascinating Rhythm". Zeke introduces the band members, including the young pre-teen girl vocalist as "my wife".
